The world of The Tempest is set on a magical island. My main design concept is based on each character’s connection to the island. The group that’s connected to the island the least are the royal oppressors, survivors from the shipwreck dressed in Renaissance fashion with black and gold heavy fabrics such as velvet, brocade and wool.
The characters that are connected to the island the most are Prospero and Caliban - dressed in earthy brown, ivory and ochre with garments that feel organic and not specific to any period.
The spirits inhabit the air. They are in pastel blue, lavender and white. They wear the lightest fabrics that support the idea of not being tied to the earth.
